        Practice Fusion needs to find a way to provide us with the ability to merge duplicate patient records.

        Delete or merge !at least one of he options should be available.

        Please Fix!

        Merge would be a very valuable feature since duplicate patients happen from time to time. Nice to merge their info versus having to bounce between an active and inactive record.

        i'm very surprised there is no merge option yet. please add this as it it will be a convenience to many

        Why hasn't someone thought of a way to fix this? People are human. I'm having the same problem and the labs go to the inactive patient which is the duplicate!

        I entered a client and another employee accidentally entered the same client. Now the client has been entered into the system twice and I cannot remove or merge. It would be nice to be able to do that. Please consider making this feature a possibility in the future.

        I WOULD LIKE THE AVILITY TO BE ABLE TO MERGE PATIENT WHEN A DUPLICATE CHART HAS BEEN CREATED

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Yes, We would like to have the function

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Yes. Please add this feature.

        I am in agreement with Lizette Santiago regarding the merging of duplicate patient records, which are most if not all times created in error.

      • Faune Towery commented  · 

        Please make this either a pop up alert when a duplicate chart is created or find a way to merge when duplicate charts are created.
